A pun on the C1 adverts, but this is what's not in my wallet anymore -

VERY spendy! Hubby just got his implant finished a month or so ago--took 2 years. Did the screw/implant the first year, then got the crown the second year. Helped spread out the pain to the wallet a little bit. Seems to be working out well for him, tho.

No custom knife in my future . . . . at this rate I'll have to learn to make my own . . . :pirate1:

i got three crowns this year, all of which i paid out of pocket because my insurance company approved them, then decided, after they had been made and put in my mouth, to not pay, with no arbitration possible (letters sent to several executives including the CEO resulted in nothing). this is the same insurance company that paid $60k without batting an eye when i shattered my leg a couple years ago, of which i paid zero out of pocket, so i guess i'm still ahead. oh well, it's nice to have all that bonding gone and replaced with something that will last a while.

I with you Lucy - I'll wait till Jan '14 for the crown part.

My friend's wife went to BudaPest and had her whole mouth done for $22k including travel, hotel and hospital stay. Amazing since her dentist here in town quoted her $75k+

Yeah, 6k, still paying it off, but every two months I would get nitrous. Still not worth it; six or 12 knives worth...

What's in my mouth?

My tounge....

My teeth.....

The razor blade I'm going to use to slice up the bastard that called me a fat pig and a retard on facebook because he thinks that being an 8 hour drive 20 DSN's and 40 fake IP addresses away will save him from this beat down he is about to get sold for the low low price of some teeth and a blood donation cause I don't play games and I don't care if he is only 18 and immature you going to act like a grown man you can wind up in the E.R with a concussion and a fractured rib like an old man..........

Some cherries I got from the farmer's market........
